When displaying errors from mailservers the text has  (square) in it
This error I'm not able to recreate all the times but sometimes I'm getting this funny error message. Please remove the  (square) at the end of the message!
Reassign to jefft. Looking at the screen shot, maybe we're not stripping some trailing CRLF?

Mass moving to M16 to get these off the M15 radar. Please let me know if this is really an M15 stopper.
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
Not beta2 stopper, marking M18. Please add beta2 keyword if you disagree.
Target Milestone: M16 → M18
Could be a buffer overrun/corruption. Please think of that as a possibility. We have seen similar problem happen elsewhere and I think jfrancis might have worked on it. This character shows up as a muscial 1/8th note depending on what fonts you have on your system.

In the other bug, mscott says that we are not stripping off CRLF -- not a buffer overrun problem.
When you get somekind of error back from the mail server, the error text always include a  (square) in the end of the text. CRLF should be stripped of any error text back from the mail server when displaying it.
Summary: Reading mail gives my error with  (square) in it → When displaying errors from mailservers the text has  (square) in it
Could someone point me to the code where displaing of error occors, since this bug is kind of bugging me, and it must be an easy fix.
Jeff is in sabbatical. Ccing bienvenu & mscott who should know....
I already have a bug for this. We aren't stripping the CRLFs of the server text before throwing the dialog.
